Re: Awards and Gathering--Got an Email from the Derby Organizers
I asked them to post information about the weigh station and awards cermony online and here is their response:
Thank you for your advice. We are in the process of getting the website up-to-date with the info you mentioned. It is on the back of the paper tickets but no online tickets.
The weigh station is opposite the Mt. Washington dock in the Weirs. It can be accessed by boat or car. We will also have our people there to assist with the boats. We will have a motor home on the roadside. The hours are 8 a.m to 9 p.m. Fri and Sat. and 8-12 on Sun. The fish in before 6 will qualify for that day’s prizes and fish entered from 6-9 will be on the next day’s prizes. We will only weigh in the bigger of two fish (same species) as only 1 qualifies. There is no sense in keeping fish that are “just” the limit as they won’t win prizes and can be releases as we encourage catch & release. There are more salmon than trout weigh in by a big ratio so a trout is more likely to win a prize is it’s near the 22” mark. If you happen to have 2 salmon with only one that will qualify and you’re not going to eat it, please release it.
The award ceremonies are at the Laconia Ice Arena on Rt. 107. They start at 8 p.m. on Fri and Sat and 2:30 on Sun. We try to start promptly and last 1 hr. both night as 1.5 hrs on Sun.
I hope this info is helpful to you, but feel free to contact us again.
